I know that there is some international concern. I would welcome the government to seek advice and recommendation from others, both from within Hungary and from the Council of Europe and the United Nations. While any country was free to draft its own constitution, it had to be in line with international rules and norms. When such laws are adopted, it is the responsibility of the government to ensure that they comply with all relevant international agreements, including the protection of the freedom of media and expression.
